Topic: Anti-corruption cooperation
Q: Is there more room for anti-corruption cooperation between China and the international community?
A: We are facing hefty tasks in hunting fugitives and recovering money. Partly it is because the number of Chinese criminals who have fled oversea is still large, and partly because criminals and suspects keep running away from the country. So it is a long-term task.
But we have made encouraging achievements, bringing overseas fugitives back to this country by way of extradition, repatriation, or persuasion. We need to strengthen cooperation with the US in this field in the future.
